I feel a tear run down my face
As I sit in this quiet, lonely place.
I think of you and need you here.
I wipe away my falling tear.
Poems for when a Family member is in Prison
Prison is the punishment that keeps on taking. Long after the individual has regretted his or her sin and wishes to go back to living a productive life, he must stay in prison wasting his precious years on this earth. Almost anything you take from a man can be given back except time. He can never reclaim the time that was stolen from him. He can never experience his children growing up for they are already grown. He can never experience those precious moments with his wife for most likely she has moved on. Of all the crimes that man commits to go to prison, in most cases our decision to keep him there is worse.
